Yeah, I love my flow hood. It's only little but it makes life soooo much easier. Going back to using a glove box would be torture. I plan on using my flow hood for tissue culture when I am able to as well.

Ive never looked back really. Just bleach and alcohol spray your work area, turn it on for half an hour and work right in front of it. I cant remember the last time i saw an airborne contaminant and its a million times more reliable than a glovebox (which are also a super pain in the arse).

Well after about 600 transfers, clones and spore streaks I've had almost a complete absence of airborne contaminants. I think his other stuff is all overpriced but the flow hood is awesome.

Hi ZenP...
Can I please ask...

1. What size is the one you have as it looks larger than the ebay link posted at the start of this thread.

2. What "price range" was it when you bought it including the freight element if you don't mind answering the Q.

3. It's been a while now... Are you still happy?

 

Cheers for any advice you can offer a pre-newby... :)
